3/4J Welcome To The World Of The 100 Word Challenge

100 Word Challenge

3/4J I would like to introduce you to a great way of practicing writing – ‘The 100 Word Challenge’.

This term we are working hard in the classroom on linking our Writer’s Notebook seeds to the drafting process. The 100 word challenge is a way we can practice short sharp pieces of writing using different types of images and sentence starters to stimulate our thinking.

This week the 100WC have a photograph from the wonderful Jane Hewitt whose book ‘Learning through a lens’ is a fantastic resource for every classroom.

It looks like one of her little people has got themselves into a bit of a difficulty. You have 100 words to write about this picture. Make sure you use your imagination!

    Imagine if the lego girl was strugling to get out of the cuffs and jump off the stump. Imagine if the chicken tried swallowing me whole. Imagine if the chicken thought I was a seed. Theres a lego master builder flying above, HELP I’M GETTING EYE BALLED FROM A GIANT BIRD. Ouch! The chicken pocked me times. I asked him/her to stop. The chicken said O.K. I said YOU CAN TALK. Well yaer. Hey you want to play around and be best budies, Why wouldnt I. So we both took off and have fun. at the end he grew up and swallowed me whole.
